Backlogging.

I remember liking this odd lime tisaine well enough the last time I had it. I enjoyed the taste and its uniqueness. This time the tisaine wasn’t as I remembered it being. I didn’t enjoy it as much and I struggled to finish the last of the cup. I suspect I need to try it another time or two to make a firm decision on how I feel about it. This steep maybe have been user error. Perhaps I steeped it three minutes the first time I had it. Either way, I have no more bags of it. I’ll not buy it again for the sole purpose of trying it again. But I may at some point get another Numi bagged teas sampler from the grocery.

The end result is that I’m rating it for this time drinking it. I thought I had tealogged it last time I had it but I see I did not. So it gets a 45, right in the middle of drinkable (40-50). I actually feel it should be even lower, closer to 40, but it gets a scant few points for the memory of having liked it last time.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
